Pain... is a curious thing. It is simply stunning how much we can take. Until we can't. We put up with pain for days, or months, or years and end up trying medications, therapies, heat packs, cold packs, or more...
At some point, enough is enough.
When we have finally had it, we want to be pain-free NOW. I'm going to take a wild guess and say, if you've read this far, you've had enough with living with pain, and you need help. If this is true, then I am happy to tell you that this may be the most impactful thing you read today.
It's a sad fact that many people continue to struggle with degenerative disc pain even after pursuing over the counter medications, doctor visits for prescriptions in hopes of an answer. When that fails it can lead to physical therapy, acupuncture, internet searches for a self care secret... and then ultimately pain management.
The harmful side effects and addictive quality of these medications can be a dangerous course for anyone.
Finally the promise of a surgical cure can be persued which has been associated with the rise of failed back surgery syndrome today.
That's why we are passionate about the non narcotic, non surgical solutions provided at Backbone Wellness Institute.
Dr. Garda’s approach to work on my lower back pain was very helpful. I was in too much pain to have someone try to forcefully manipulate by spine. Instead, Dr. Garda worked to strengthen my spine allowing for re-alignment. I am now completely pain free and back to full mobility.
Dr. Garda is very gently and extremely effective in his care. He takes the extra time to understand my alignment and particular situation to make the most out of my visits. Anyone considering chiropractic would be silly not to see Dr. Garda because of his educational methods in his care.
First doctor/chiropractor in 4 years to correctly identify the issue I’m having with my back. Couldn’t be happier with the results I’ve seen, and look forward to continuing my visits. Dr. Garda is wonderful, and I would encourage anyone looking for a chiropractor to visit his practice.
When I first started coming here I couldn't stand up straight and couldn't walk far without using a walker. I had gone to a back specialist and they recommended a surgery. I decide to try the Backbone Wellness first. I can now walk on my therapy treadmill, which is a slower than normal, for 15 mins. at 1.5 speed. When I first started I walked .05 speed & barely made 3 mins. I would be doing even better if I hadn't had a accident 1/2 way through my treatments.
